As Andy said, it won't be a rivalry if he doesn't score a few matches, ...
Based on what we've seen Andy has to play out of his mind to beat a less-than-best Roger. I'm sure everybody has a lucky day. Roger had one yesterday, where he pulled out a huge victory that was slipping away, and amazingly for the way he was playing compared to Andy, in four sets.
V true what you said here! Pandy himself knows it isn't a true rivalry... even tho the dorks on ESPN and NBC keep going on and on ad nauseum...
I was a little surprised that Pandy could not keep up his powerful level fr the 1st set tho... usually he hangs in there to win but then again he WAS up a set... and Rogi doesn't lose too many first sets lately.
Not the best Final but it had its moments!
The best was Rogi prevailing!!
